Marj states that she wasn’t aware that something ‘as automatic as breathing’, could be changed into conscious action.
She then started to understand the need children have for breathwork; which can help children with anxiety and help them get off medication etc. At present, Breathwork Africa has a lot of programmes for genies.
Marj defines herself as a parent to many and believes that the role of a parent is to give children roots and to give them wings and tools to support their growth.
Breathwork Africa developed their own methodology called, ‘Threads of Pneumanity’ which is a combination of two words- Pneuma meaning Spirit and then Humanity, as they believe that the wisdom in what they offer actually comes from Africa.
One of the concepts is the concept of Sankofa, which Marj describes is a Ghanian word which means, ‘to look back, and pay homage to the ancestors.
This is a wonderful episode and Marj generously educates about breathwork and some of the courses she runs- one of them is called ‘Breathing Buddies’, which is a training course they do for people who work with genies.
Look out for Breathwork Africa’s latest breathwork book that supports genies, details are on their website.
Yummy quotes in this episode:
“… We need to remember that they (children) are just little human beings, they have the same emotions, the same pain as us- but they don’t have the brain to process it yet.”
“… The first breath was taken here (in Africa), and that is everybody’s birthright.
